In a few words, Dr. Kowolski saved my life. I am a high-risk cardiac patient who was diagnosed with endometrial adenocarcinoma. A radical hysterectomy was my only solution. Dr K. worked with my Cardiolgist and made sure that all precautions were taken and that I was safe during the DaVinci procedure. I am 11 days post-op and and feel great and know that I am cancer-free. Her office staff is amazing, attentive and organized- exactly what you need when facing a cancer diagnosis. She's the best!

Dr Kowalski is one of the best in the Las Vegas Area. She is very professional, pays attention to detail, is up front with her diagnosis, and truly seems to care about her patients. She performed my surgery, took care of recommendation for my radiation, and took charge of my chemo. She stayed on top of my health, answered all my questions, and made me feel comfortable with this journey. Thank you DR K for all that you do for your patients.

To those who left 5 star ratings and rating their surgery painless I say bs. It has been 1 month and I am still in pain. Cannot sit or move bowels without pain during and after. No one from the doctor's office has ever called me to ask how I am doing if I need assistance getting around etc. If you gals who overrated this office weren't paid to do so then good for you. It has not been the case with me.

I feared the hysterectomy for uterine cancer more than the disease. Dr. Kowalski talked me through the procedure, addressing all my existing concerns. For me, the surgery was incredibly PAINLESS and I actually felt better afterward than I had for months. I was discharged the day after and a week later, I went to the 50th Anniversary Concert Tour of the Moody Blues. Dr. Kowalski is meticulous, precise and, to me, a surgical rock star. I trust her.

Dr. Kowalski was highly recommended to me for surgery and I am so happy she was. Her office staff and she took care of me with efficiency, compassion and care. I was kept well-informed and the follow-up appointments have been meaningful and overall great. It was evident to me from the very beginning that I was working with a doctor who is a leader in her field for very good reasons. My family and I are very grateful.

I had cervical cancer and had to have a hysterectomy (total) and also have my ovaries removed. Dr. Kowalski guided me through the cancer treatment with compassion and wisdom. The surgeries did treat the cancer but it left me not wanting to have sex. There was little feeling, no moisture and sex was painful. Dr. Kowalski suggested the FemiLift and boy did it work! My husband and I are back to where we were before the cancer. We don't need lube and the feeling and desire has returned.

I am re-evaluating to give Dr Kowalski and her staff the 5 stars they deserve. We had a bit of a communication glitch with a refund that was due to me. It was cleared within a fair time period and the staff, including Mark Rosales, was apologetic and efficient in clearing the problem. I appreciate their honesty and follow through in the end with handlimg that. As for Dr Kowalski, she is a bright and knowledgeable doctor who listens to her patients, and explains in detail her findings.

Dr. Kowalski went over everything before my surgery, explained procedure and answered questions. Everything went just as she had said it would. I had very little discomfort and was very pleased with the entire process. Thank you, Dr. Kowalski.

Dr, Kowalski was great. I had a complete hysterectomy Oct. 27, 2015. She did a robotic arthroscopic hysterectomy. 1 week after surgery I was feeling great. Very little discomfort. My biggest complaint was I was tired. My friends who had previously had hysterectomies could not believe that I was pain free and doing so well. Dr Kowalski not only is a terrific GYN Oncology surgeon but she is caring, compassionate and with a breadth of knowledge in her profession unequaled in this area.
